    Yang Cheng Fu said this.

    顶劲者,

    头容正直,

    神贯于顶也。

    Ding Jin (jin at the crown of the head) means The head’s bearing is upright and vertical and the ​Shen is threaded up to the crown.

    不可用力,

    用力则项强,

    气血不能流通,

    须有虚灵自然之意。

    You must not use force (apply ​li).

    If you use force, then the back of the neck will be stiff And the​ qi and blood will not be able to circulate.

    You must have an ​Yi of ​Xu Ling and natural ease (z​iran).

    非有虚灵顶劲,

    则精神不能提起也。

    If you don’t have ​Xu Ling Ding Jin,

    then you can’t raise the spirit of vitality (​Jing Shen).
